Atarisoft was a brand name used by Atari to market video games they published for home systems made by their competitors. They published only 4 games for Colecovision. Galaxian and Jungle Hunt are hard to find, but Centipede and Defender are common. Unfortunately, Atarisoft never released Pac-Man on Colecovision. This port of Pac-Man was completed, and had many of the aspects of Namco's original Pac-Man. It is superior to most other ports by Atarisoft.
